Welcome to the website of artist Karen Hartnell

I am a Wildlife and Pet Portrait artist based in beautiful southern Perthshire, Scotland.  I undertake commissions from photographs of pets, horses and wildlife.

Commission Waiting List Information - Update July 2017

My waiting list is provisionally booked through to early December 2017, depending on how long current bookings take to complete. I'm hoping there may be more space available this year, as I progress through my Waiting List; sometimes I over-estimate timescales where deadlines are concerned to ensure commissions are completed in plenty of time. I will update here if anything becomes available before that time.

A deposit of 50% is payable to secure bookings - see Commission Information pages for details.

Sea Eagle Festival, Tayport, Fife - Saturday 26th August, 2017, 12-4pm

Celebrating 10 years since the east Scotland reintroduction began, I will be demonstrating my Eagle Antics cartoons, as well as some fun colouring in for all! I'll also have some of my eagle art work on display, and I hope to try and raise some funds on the day for the East Scotland Sea Eagle project. Please come along if you're in the area and say hello, and learn all about these amazing birds. To find out more about the event on the RSPB website, click here

If you are interested in commissioning a pet portrait, you can find more detailed information on the Commission Information pages or by downloading my Commission Information & Price Guide, PDF format.

My commissioned work has primarily been watercolour or graphite pencil. I have been increasingly using acrylics for my non-commission work and I'm now offering this medium for commissions.

Hand-painted Dog Breed Plaques are available from my online Store, where you can find more information. Each plaque is hand-painted and finished ready to hang. Commissioned options are now available for bespoke hand-painted plaques. They make a great gift for dog lovers.
